On offer is an absolutely remarkable pair [2] of diaries offering an insight into the world of what must have been a youngish woman living with her mother in the Washington DC area who was a case study in obsessive compulsive disorder and perhaps agoraphobia and assuredly a long list of other conditions. These diaries covering the years 1976 and 1982 are free form diaries written on 9 x 6 inch three hole blank paper with every possible inch covered in this woman's neat and very legible handwriting. Our writer records almost every incident, every movement, every action over her waking life. The weather, the television show, the number of cookies, the cat's bowel movements time and consistency, the news of the day, Congressional news, international affairs +++++ is recorded, noted and discussed in her writings. She begins the entries with the time of the day and many days she begins at four o'clock in the morning until late at night. It is no wonder when we read the build up to her breakdown and her time in the hospital. A psychiatrist could be specific no doubt assessing this woman through her writings as she is open and concise about her moment by moment doings. She even records what laundry she is washing and the detergent she uses. Besides the unique look into this woman's life and mind one also is a party to an American woman who is completely enthralled in pop culture voraciously watching television, reading movie magazines and completely immersed in entertainment events. No covers but otherwise complete. Pages held by string. Overall G+.
